Due to Cyclone Hola, this trip has been rescheduled to Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 March.
Registrations are open for anyone else who wishes to join the rescheduled trip.
The North Shore Tramping Club has undertaken to clear one of the many tracks in the Kaimai Ranges which is administered by the Kaimai Ridgeway Trust.
Several trips already by members have enabled nearly half of the track to be cleared. The track runs north from the top of the Wairere Falls to a junction near Aongatete.
Are you able to help on the next trip? The work is not difficult. All you need is some good garden gloves and hedge cutters. It will be an ideal time because the rain has softened the ground and will enable grasses and plants to be pulled out with ease, as we have previously experienced.
As there is no cabins, tents are required (available for loan from the club if required). There is an abundance of clean water available in the streams.
Is there someone who can loan a GPS to enable a particular site to be located along the track? We have the co-ordinates.
When: We will travel down to the carpark at the bottom on Wairere Falls early Monday morning, 19 March, and return Tuesday afternoon,20 March.
